Hey new thread since our old stopping smoking and not gaining-too--much weight has been lost from chat! BOO!!!

I am not a good role model however as I HAVE piled on a stone, well 12 lbs now, since giving up the cigs.
This must be rectified!
Hence joining in the club section!

Donnadoon hope you find this thread.

Everyone else pile in, join and be happy or miserable bastard ex smokers

You're up early as always no wonder you need early nights.
Kids are getting back in the swing of it, they need sleep for school, swimming, dancing, gymnastics just goes on doesnt it!
I've finally shifted the bloody virus, felt awful.
Back to exercise and so need to I'm looking rather rotund!

Girls holiday for a landmark birthday. god I'm getting ancient and I don't care! grin

Will be good fun!
Never left kids before so feels a bit funny.

Celeb BB is good so far, what a bunch they are.

Anyways take care.

Get zzzzzs x

Donnadoon Wed 20-Aug-14 05:05:54

Omg I'm with you on BB
I'd like to know who votes for these 'winners'
Are you watching CBB?
I can't always stay awake past 10 pm, what with these early starts
Dumdumdum ! Away with the girls, Go you ! Is it a hen doo ? And yeah I read somewhere that women dress to impress other women and deep down we don't give two hoots what the fellas think, lol
I love the way your kids are revolting at early bedtimes too lol I'm not looking forward to the battle commencing in two weeks time here
Gonna try and catch some more Zzzzzs
Ta ra for now x

Hey buddy!

Lurgy is lifting here, so glad to be getting back to normal.
Did you watch the end of BB?
I wanted Christopher to win, just to annoy Mark!

Hope your not DIYing, it makes me feel lazy grin

Schools back here.
Kids have settled back in, but are revolting at early bedtimes. Tough!

Still working away and half laughing, half moaning at the thought of it!

Must hit the gym, I'm going away with my friends for a few days and there will be skin exposure. Dumdum dum!
Why am I more worried about being in a swimming costume among friends than I was with other half and kids and half of Spain grin


Hope all is well your end and that ou are getting plenty of runs from your driving son!

The washing pile is back to normal which is always two loads a day
Sorry you still have lurgy flowers and cake sod the gym !
Not DIY ing just yet, hoovered the green machine out today it was full of sand and melted ice cream, yuk ! Been meaning to do it since the weekend blush I'm slacking !
Kids are getting bored of being off school already , they still have 19 days off to go. IIRC yours go back before mine ? I must say I enjoy not having the chore of making pack lunches and ironing uniforms and the homework nagging! But ....
Must get their school shoes give me strength on Monday though before they sell out of their favourite and or their sizes.
I'm glad I've only got two in school though, there was a reason I had age gaps, the expense is staggered thank The Lord

Hey mrs!
So glad you had a great time!
You deserve a good holiday all the running about that you do constantly!

Lurgy still here. Boo!
On antibiotics but feeling crap if I'm being honest.
Sure next week I will be fighting fit!

Plan is to get better, get my flabby ass to the gym and restart life!
Meanwhile I'm also trying not to sweat the small stuff grin

How's the washing mountain post holiday?
And please tell me you're not onto your next DIY adventure!

Glad to have ya back wink

Lovely weather and no cooking or washing, what's not to like?
Back to a lovely clean house, but trashed within an hour of getting in grin
And the mahooosive task that is washing, mowing an overgrown garden, Ah...back to the daily grind, feel fully rested now, but a bit chubby grin
'Twas all that clotted cream I tell thee

Hope alls well with you

FrantasticO Fri 01-Aug-14 23:33:17

Enjoy the nice weather and the holiday build up! YEEHA !!

Way hay !
Glad you're home!
So glad you had a lovely time
You must have had lovely weather too huh?
It's been glorious hasn't it ?
Alls good here
Got my hands well and truly full I tell thee
I never get a minute to myself
I haven't bought those rasberry tabs yet because of the price shock and they not a good idea whilst still bfing
I've not had time to stuff myself lately anyway and I don't fancy chocolate when it's hot and sunny so I'll just have to keep doing the DVD and brave my wobbly bits grin

FrantasticO Fri 18-Jul-14 15:26:55


I'm back!!
Was the best holiday EVER we all had an amazing time.
That's great that you are off in 2 weeks, you will have a fab time!

Are we clones? I took raspberry ketones before going from holland and Barrett. Definitely lost a few pounds, though was gyming it too!
I have put on a pile of blubber on holiday, but it was worth it!

Gym here I come!

How's that family of yours getting on?
Hope you are not running about too much! I know that's your default

Sure you are looking lovely and will have a fab time on the beach!
Wish I was going away ageing just now too -- greedy me aren't I ?--

Take care and catch up soon!

Donnadoon Wed 16-Jul-14 20:39:41

You still on hols mrs ?
Lucky you, hope you having lovely time
We go in two weeks
I need to slim down to be able wear a cozzie
Just been reading about a supplement called rasberry k2 tablets
They are available at boots and they suppress your appetite etc
I'm not usually a fan of any sort of tablets but I'm thinking it might be a quick fix for my wobbly bits combined with my davina dvd
What d'ya reckon?
It's been manic here with sports days , assembly's and concerts etc, the kids break up tomorrow here
It's hot hot hot too , the paddling pool is getting some use
Anyhoo hope you are ok
Talk to you soon

Donnadoon Mon 07-Jul-14 21:17:59

Wowzers ! We are in July !
Hope you had/having lovely hols !
I've got hayfever, never had it before, eyes are streaming all day and it's really hindering me
Starting taking a tablet now every day, not working though
In other news, I slimmed right down a couple of weeks ago, I was well happy with myself
Until this weekend I've not stopped eating, hormones I think, but I only have to look at a cake and my jeans are digging in
Also I'm down in the dumps and a tiny bit concerned about dd2, 21 months and not speaking , all my others were speaking in sentences by now , the HV isn't worried, but I read too much mn and I am worried so they've placed her on a huge waiting list for Salt and a hearing test
Wo is me...sorry smile

Donnadoon Sun 29-Jun-14 19:37:48

Woo for your hols Fran !
Have a lovely time!
Eat drink and be merry, you can diet all year round but not on your hols !

FrantasticO Sun 29-Jun-14 19:22:57

Ha at you driving by ds work.
I would too!

Off on hols tomorrow so catch up with you on my return!

Be good and take care mrs whirlwind!

Here I come!

Donnadoon Fri 27-Jun-14 21:24:54

Hiya sorry I've been sooooo busy
I'm off my emotional rollercoaster that is PFB driving off in his polo just like the advert
I'm such a nightmare, I even drove past his work car park to make sure he got there ok twice this week blush
Mine are all fine thanks, little un was 5 months old yesterday shock
Her and the 20 month old are so cute together now, they weren't best friends at first
We've got the inlaws visiting this weekend
Hope your little one has a lovely birthday
And you have a lovely hols mrs!
Make sure you kick back and relax and have plenty of wine for me
I had a glass last weekend and it was delish ! Can't go mad because I'm still bf and she sometimes still co sleeps, not every night though, it's hit and miss
Anyhoo I'll try and post again over weekend
Laters matey

FrantasticO Fri 27-Jun-14 19:18:56

Hey mrs hope you are ok!
Family all doing well?

I'm off on hols in next couple of days so will be AWOL!
Will check in here before I go!

Have a party for my youngest tomorrow...wish me luck!

Hope you and yours are all well!
Laters matey and thanks again for listening to my moans last week...have given myself a shake!

FrantasticO Sat 21-Jun-14 21:19:53

Ooohhh and how's the wee ones now?
Bet they are funny together now? grin

FrantasticO Sat 21-Jun-14 21:18:58

I agree it is a fact!
Shit though isn't it!! grin

Haven't done any patting down.
Feeling twitchy though!

Tent is fab!
Off to buy rest of the bits in next few weeks, airbeds n sleeping bags!

I get the anxiety about driver boy!
Think I'd be the same.
You sound fab though, letting him do it, they need some independence.

Anyhoo sun is still shining blardy miracle
And I'm more sane today grin

Laters matey!

Donnadoon Sat 21-Jun-14 14:35:55

hows the tent ?
I havnt slept well this week with my boy out on the open road...I dont think I can go through this worry 5 times...the others will have to get the bus I think grin
Im with you on the patting down, I fell out with my DM last summer and give her a wide berth for a couple of months for promising to take two of mine to the cinema and than cancelling/re-arranging due to hair appointments and friends birthdays angry Anyhoo there was no patting down that time, she had both barrells, she dont do any childcare for me though grin So its vair tricky for you
All my kids have been blessed with DHs fast metabilism except poor DC3 has been cursed with mine grin and whenever she complains that shes "fat" comparing herself to her bird like tiny friend I have to be fairly honest with her and say " sweetheart you are not fat, you are perfect, blah blah, but you are just like me, your mumma and unfortunately we can not get away with eating all the wrong things too often because our clothes soon feel tight " Yada get the picture...but it is really hard and your heart goes out to them, food is addictive to some people...fact

FrantasticO Fri 20-Jun-14 17:17:19

Hey matey!
Needed to vent thanks!

Feeling much calmer today...and of course no cigs!
Have had words with my mum, and now going to keep quiet.
I am the one who ALWAYS says sorry and does the patting down to make it all ok normally.
Have had enough this time though, so we will see.

Sun is shining and kids are having a blast in paddling pool!
Got a tent so trial put up shortly!

How's your boy and his driving adventures!
Very exciting and nerve wracking I'm sure!

Sorry for the moans!

Laters x

Donnadoon Fri 20-Jun-14 16:44:10

Oh no
just seen this sorry
Im a shit friend
nearly 24 hours have passed
Hope you are ok now flowers
I have no useful advice really sad

Rant away though Fran, I here ya !
